Default Little bit of help with goggles...

Hi guys,

I'm looking to get my girlfriend a pair of goggles for her birthday. She's currently using some no name generic ones that came free with her snowboard. Anybody have any suggestions? Any ladies out there have a preference?

Thanks for your help!

Smith I/O's are nice and come in a size for smaller faces. They have lot's of other models too.

Oakley, Electric, Dragon, Spy all make good goggles at various price points.

I picked up a pair of Smith I/OS's (the women's version of the I/O's) and really like them.

They fit nicely with my Smith Maze helmet, too.

Stay away from the reflective lenses unless its going to be a second pair. Those are made for bright sunny conditions. Best all around lense is going to be the cheaper amber colored non reflective one.

The Smith I/OS is very nice and comes with two lenses and both a hard case and a soft case. My daughter loves hers, I found them online for $59.

reflective lenses make gondola rides less awkward. Totally worth it.
